Public Sector Gains Easier Access with New Subscription and Training Services Listing to Reap the Benefits of the Open Source Database
LONDON, UK—4th March 2014—MongoDB, the database for modern applications, today announced that the company’s subscription and training services are now available through G-Cloud IV, the most recent iteration of the central government procurement program for cloud services. Inclusion in the G-Cloud CloudStore provides public sector bodies faster, streamlined access to MongoDB’s popular training and service offerings through a centralized portal.
MongoDB was selected for the G-Cloud programme in an open tender process and was chosen due to the merits of its product as well as the suitability for its use within the public sector. Additional criteria for selection include the requirement for services listed to be both cost effective as well as avoiding vendor-lock in.
This announcement builds on existing success for MongoDB in helping the public sector to manage their data demands with services already provided to bodies including The National Archives, Met Office and the Government Digital Service.
Joe Morrissey, vice president, EMEA at MongoDB commented on the news: “Being included in the G-Cloud is great news for MongoDB and the UK public sector. We are seeing significant demand from public bodies for open source solutions that deliver high performance as well as cost savings and being listed on the G-Cloud will make it easier for those organisations to receive the benefits.”
Thousands of organisations have selected MongoDB to build and run new applications because of its agile and scalable approach. Common use cases include operational and analytical big data, content management and delivery, mobile and social infrastructure, user data management and data hub. MongoDB has a thriving global community with approximately 5 million downloads, 100,000 online education registrations, 20,000 user group members and 20,000 MongoDB Days attendees.
